Chicken Broccoli Stuffing Casserole Ingredients

The best part about this recipe is that it only requires six ingredients (most of which you probably already have). Here's what you'll need:

Chicken
While the recipe calls for chicken breasts (cooked and shredded), you can use any cut of chicken — or even rotisserie chicken to save some prep time.

Broccoli
You can use fresh or frozen broccoli because it's cooked before added to the casserole.

Stuffing Mix
Use your favorite boxed stuffing here.

Cream of Mushroom Soup
The condensed soup will make the casserole extra creamy. While we love to use cream of mushroom, some reviewers like to use cream of chicken soup instead.

Mayonnaise
Mixing the mayo and the cream of mushroom soup together will create a moist and creamy casserole.

Cheddar Cheese
Combined with the soup mixture, the cheese adds another layer of gooey goodness.

How to Make Broccoli Chicken Casserole

Cook the Chicken

Simmer chicken in a large pot with water until it's no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Shred the chicken.

If you're using leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken, simply shred it (no need to cook it again, it will warm up in the oven).

Make the Soup Base

Mix the cream of mushroom soup with the mayonnaise.

Assemble the Casserole

Combine the soup mixture with the chicken, broccoli, and Cheddar cheese. Transfer it to a 9x13-inch baking dish and top with the stuffing mix.

Bake the Casserole

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"I loved it as well as my boyfriend, who is very picky about chicken meals. I mixed stuffing in the mix and then sprinkled some on top (I am a big stuffing fan) and then topped with bread crumbs as other users suggested. Very delicious, will make again," according to ChristaJ.

"I have made this recipe a few times now. This time I substituted cream of chicken soup and colby cheese. Next time I might spice it up with garlic and a few onions, but this is an easy, yummy recipe," says livsmom.

"Thanks so much for this recipe. It was delicious, delicious, delicious! I used cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, and 3/4 cup milk, added a few spices and mixed them all together in a bowl rather than layer them. My husband LOVED it and so did my PICKY, PICKY toddler," raves Pep.

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup dry stuffing mix

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Remove chicken from the pot and cut into bite-sized pieces when cool enough to handle.

  4. Mix together condensed soup and mayonnaise in a bowl.

  5. Layer chicken in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Layer cooked broccoli over top, then soup mixture, and finally Cheddar cheese. Sprinkle dry stuffing mix over top.
